Participatory Video for Monitoring & Evaluation CASE STUDY: Community-Based Adaptation in Africa

In 2009 InsightShare was invited by IIED (International Institute for Environment and Development) to develop ways to use participatory video to monitor and evaluate climate change adaptation. Over 18 months, we held workshops in South Africa, Kenya, Zimbabwe and Malawi under the Community-Based Adaptation in Africa (CBAA) initiative.

In this video the Comcaac explain how Western companies came to their communities -- promising lots of money -- but causing climate change, contamination and depletion of their natural resources. The Comcaac are proud of their wisdoms on how to conserve nature and feel responsible to leave a healthy and alive Earth behind for the coming generations.


LEAP Sport Evaluation

In December 2007, Kenya - long considered one of the most stable countries in East Africa - descended into political violence following disputed presidential elections. The city of Eldoret was one of the locations where the violence escalated. Mercy Corps decided to use sport in Eldoret as a means to change perceptions between tribes, build peace, promote reconciliation and give young people a hope for the future. The program was called LEAP Sport and is being run by a local organisation called A-STEP.


Community Based Adaptation in Africa

Some of the poorest people in the world are already coping with a changing climate. InsightShare travelled to Kenya, Zimbabwe and Malawi to facilitate three Participatory Video for Monitoring and Evaluation workshops. The workshops were to help the local partner organisation and community members keep track of ("Monitor") their ability to cope with changes in the climate and decide together (evaluate) what type of adaptation strategy they thought best for them.

The children explain that from now on they will do their best to take good care of the mangroves to protect their land.
